Benoy Cottage is a quaint farm cottage set at the heart of a working dairy farm, surrounded by the beautiful west Dorset countryside. From here a herd of 450 pedigree Holstein cows are milked.
The cottage was completely renovated in 2009 and offers a spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining area. Externally, two sets of French doors offer direct access to the furnished decked balcony and then onto the communal lawn.
Pilsdon Dairy Farm is a fouth generation family farm that has been farming in this area for over 100 years. The family is very proud of their pedigree herd, and arrangements can be made in advance for an informal tour of the dairy unit.
Pilsdon Dairy Farm is just a few miles away from the dramatic Jurassic Coast, England’s first World Heritage site. The popular market town of Bridport is a short drive away where there are a selection of cafes, restaurants, an arts centre and a large supermarket. The picturesque harbour town of Lyme Regis is also a short drive away where you can find an array of shops, eateries and beaches.
